First, did you know that inflammation of your Thyroid affects its function?
Phase #1: Flu-like Symptoms Affect Your Thyroid
The little butterfly shaped gland right in your throat chakra produces hormones that controls your metabolism and energy production. –“.. ITIS” is the term we use in medicine that means inflammation of a body part.
Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is named after the doctor who discovered this type of inflammation. Thyroiditis is when your thyroid becomes inflamed. The first signs and symptoms feel like the flu. Body aches, fatigue, fever, difficulty swallowing because your thyroid gland is swollen and even tender and painful. That’s because thyroiditis is an autoimmune condition meaning your body is attacking itself. Your immune cells attack your thyroid and interfere with normal thyroid hormone production. It’s believed that thyroiditis may be triggered by a viral infection.
Phase #2 Tremulous Overheated Anxious Signs of Hyperthyroidism
When your thyroid first becomes attacked, it over responds by producing too much thyroid hormone. This makes your heart race,, so you feel shaky, tremulous and anxious. You can’t tolerate heat and you sweat a lot and get overheated easily. Your bowels move frequently because everything is running too rapidly. You may even lose weight in the beginning. For up to 6 weeks, you feel really wired and out of of sorts.
Phase #3 Tired, Sluggish, Low-functioning Thyroid
After a brief period of feeling somewhat normal, you start noticing that you get tired easily. If you keep moving you seem to be ok, but if you sit down you may just fall asleep. That’s a low functioning thyroid. And after being attacked by your immune system and over functioning for weeks, your thyroid can poop out. Everything slows down. You’re cold, constipated and lethargic. You may even notice swelling especially your eyelids. This may last for months. A low functioning thyroid is called hypothyroidism and may become permanent in up to 15% of people. So it’s really important to get a check up and bloodwork done. At this stage your hypothalamus is screaming at your thyroid to produce more hormones so your Thyroid Stimulating Hormone or TSH will be elevated.
